2-6 Southampton Row
hotel & leisure
McLaren Construction Group
This Grade II listed property was once a church to be refurbished into a boutique hotel. An asbestos survey of the building had identified the presence of asbestos-containing textured coatings to the original ceilings which required complete removal.
Extreme care was required during the removal of the textured coating so as not to damage the ornate cornices and mouldings that were to be retained as features of the new hotel. An original chapel that existed within the building was decontaminated and this process involved the careful recording, removal, cleaning, and storage of listed timber panelling by our in-house asbestos-trained carpenters.
